The rock duo first met back in 1975 when both the artists, Alan Parson and Eric Woolfson were working at the Abbey Road Studios. Alan Parsons who had filled in the positions of assistant engineer for Beatles’ “Let It Be” and “Abbey Road” and as engineer for Pink Floyd’s album “the Dark Side of the Moon” approached Eric Woolfson during the summer of 1974. Eric Woolfson, who was a composer and a songwriter, had been working as a part of Edgar Allan Poe’s concept album at that time. Not only did Woolfson fill in as session pianist, he also composed material for the artist.
After accepting Parson’s proposal to working as his manager, the two decided to create an album relating to the developments that were taking place in the music industry. Woolfson wanted to use the music industry as a medium that would promote producers just as the directors were promoting themselves via the film industry. With this the two artists decided to combine their talents, where Woolfson would compose material and Parsons would engineer and produce the songs. After a year and a half of compositions, the two artists came forth with their debut album in 1976. Titled “Tales of Mystery and Imagination”, the album was released via 20th Century Fox Records in the US and Casablanca in theUK. Musicians and vocalists who presented their talent on the album included Terry Sylvester from “The Hollies”, Arthur Brown” from “The Crazy World of Arthur Brown”, Francis Monkman from “Sky” and “Curved Air” and the entire lineup from bands “Pilot” and “Ambrosia”. Landing amongst the top 40 albums of the Billboard Pop Albums Chart, the song “Doctor Tarr and Professor Fether” peaked at number 37 of the Billboard Pop Singles Chart. With a positive critical reception the album was awarded 4.5 out of 5 stars by Allmusic.
With the success of their debut album, the Alan Parsons Project was signed on by Arista Records. In 1977 the duo released “I Robot” which presented chart topping hits namely “Time”, “Eye in the Sky”, “Limelight” and “Inside Looking Out”. Since then the band has released a total of 10 studio albums, their last album being released back in 1987. In 1990 the duo was seen getting together to produce an official album titled “Freudiana”, a concept album that presented the life works of psychologist, Sigmund Freud. Exploring some of Freud’s classic cases such as Little Hans, Wolfman, the Judge, Dora and Ratman, the artists reinvented his theories. After this album the two artists decided to pursue solo careers with Alan Parsons releasing his album “Try Anything Once”. Over the years, Alan jas performed with his band as Alan Parsons. However this named was changed to Alan Parsons Live Project in 1993. Currently the artist performs songs from his four solo studio albums that he has released over a decade.
